Yoga is now widely accepted in every corner of the world and yet people do not realize the depth of its philosophical merit. Modern day practitioners talk about it glibly without comprehending its potency to explore our deep pysche, and facilitate personal and spiritual transformation. It is a striking contribution of the traditional Indian mind to the world. Marked by a highly sophisticated approach to the human mind, it is no surprise that it has withstood the test of time, and is as relevant today as it was millenia ago. Despite unknown origins, Yoga was documented for the first time in the form of the Yogasutra, authored by the great Yogi Patanjali. Presented in the form of pithy statements, this text documents the entire philosophical system of Yoga in four logically arranged chapters. The aphorisms are simple in their rendering, yet pregnant with layers of meaning. The profound worth of this work has kept it alive through history, and every succeeding master of Yoga has always considered the Yogasutra as the definitive source of reference. Despite its intrinsic value in guiding people for so many generations, the genius of Patanjali is not easy to comprehend, especially for the casual reader. This is why so many translations and commentaries on the Yogasutra have been written by great teachers, each offering different insights into its rich teachings. Liberating Isolation is an English translation and commentary on the Yogasutra by Frans Moors, a long time pupil of the renowned Yogacarya TKV Desikachar. It presents the essence of Yoga philosophy to international readers, and features the aphorisms in both the classical and simplified forms in Devanagari script, their transliterated version, word-to-word meaning, and a concise translation and commentary. The text also includes a comprehensive word index. DIRECTLY IMPORTED FROM PUBLISHING HOUSE IN INDIA AT BEST PRICE GUARANTEE.
